Karawara Vision

The Karawara Public Open Space Master Plan and Collaborative Action Plan contains 14 projects that aim to strengthen Karawara’s public open space and community character.

A number of these projects are nearing completion or have been prioritised for the 2017/18 financial year, including the Walanna Drive upgrade, improvements to the greenways, a program of events in public spaces and an upgrade to the central playground.

The Karawara Public Open Space Master Plan and Collaborative Action Plan was developed through significant community engagement, through informal workshops, Aboriginal community focus sessions, a pop-up discussion trail and drop-in events.

The vision for the project is ‘working together to strengthen Karawara’s public open space and community character.’

Project principles

  • Building on Karawara character: Retain, enhance and actively build upon local spatial character attributes and seek to build upon the growing community capacity (pride)
  • Connectivity: Seek to retain and enhance existing important linkages throughout Karawara and to adjoining suburbs
  • Amenity: To incorporate amenity that reflects the landscape character and offers diversity of multiuse areas, to foster community interaction
  • Safety and security: Continue to build upon developing a safe and welcoming environment.

The purpose of the Collaborative Action Plan is to provide the community and stakeholders in facilitation with the City of South Perth an agreed project list that can be collectively implemented. The implementation of each project is based on agreed timing and priorities and may also require specialists, either from the City or external consultants, to aid in the design and implementation of each project.

The success of these actions and projects depends on the level of joint coordination between the City and community through collective participation, engagement and accountability.

Get involved

The Karawara community has already started working towards the goals in the Collaborative Action Plan. A small group of active community members are working alongside City officers to develop and deliver a number of community-driven projects in the Collaborative Action Plan. Building strong relationships with local residents ensures that the actions undertaken are responsive to and appropriate for Karawara’s unique character.

If you want to help the City build the best future for Karawara, please get in touch with the project team to find out how.
